Inter Milan have told Manchester United that Ivan Perisic is not for sale and claimed he is discussing a new contract.

Inter winger Ivan Perisic has always been linked with a move to Old Trafford, while Paris Saint-Germain full-back Serge Aurier is also a reported target, and Mourinho admits that he hopes to welcome one more new face to the club before August 31.

Mourinho took his spending this window past the £150m mark after signing Nemanja Matic from Chelsea with the midfielder following Victor Lindelof and Romelu Lukaku in making the move to Old Trafford.

"The same goes for Perisic, who is an important player and we are now discussing a new contract with him". "We don't want to sell him, he is a very important player for us".

Jose Mourinho added to the club's rich history of silverware last season by collecting the EFL Cup and Europa League but United limped to a disappointing sixth-place finish in the top flight.

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho says the world-record €222million fee Paris Saint-Germain are poised to pay to sign Neymar is "not expensive".

Shiite Muslims have remained a constant target of militant attacks across various parts of the country over the past few months. President Ashraf Ghani added that "terrorists can not create sectarian divisions among our people".


He said: "For the last two years Perisic has played at Inter".

He said: "The player is willing, and I've spoken to Nice and think everything is going in the direction that we hoped".

"The more days that pass, the more hard it becomes for us to find a replacement of his calibre".

"That makes it interesting as well because if you look at the other teams as well, they're all bringing good players in because they all want to win the league or do well in the Champions League".

"We need options. Lukaku, Martial, Rashford - all of them are different players".
